JOSH & RICHARD IN RIDERS' CHAMPIONSHIP BID

Saturday September 16, 2017
The 'Cases' Somerset Rebels duo of Josh Grajczonek and Richard Lawson will be representing the club in tonight's prestigious Premiership Riders' Championship which is being staged at Belle Vue's National Speedway Stadium.

The meeting brings together the top 2 riders from each of the 8 Premiership teams, the 16 riders compete in 20 qualifying heats, the top 2 from the heats go direct to the Grand Final, with the riders placed 3rd-6th racing in a semi-final, 1st and 2nd from the semi-final then progress to the Grand Final, with defending champion, Wolverhampton's Fredrik Lindgren, looking for his 3rd victory in the meeting.

"It is certainly a tough looking line-up," said Rebels promoter Debbie Hancock, "and you could make the cases for any one of a number of riders to be standing on the top step of the podium come the end of the meeting, but whatever the outcome, I am sure that both Josh and Richard will carry the Somerset colours with pride."

LINE-UP (not in draw order): Jason Doyle (Swindon), Fredrik Lindgren (Wolverhampton), Nick Morris (Swindon), Jacob Thorssell (Wolverhampton), Brady Kurtz (Poole), Craig Cook (Belle Vue), Hans Andersen (Poole), Kim Nilsson (Leicester), Josh Grajczonek (Somerset), Chris Harris (Rye House), Scott Nicholls (Rye House), Robert Lambert (King’s Lynn), Max Fricke (Belle Vue), Richard Lawson (Somerset), Danny King (Leicester), Thomas Jorgensen (King’s Lynn).
